ITunes :: Can Disable Prompt For Password When Start It

Apr 20, 2012

When I open iTunes, I am asked for a password, TWICE. I don't wish to use automatic downloads at this time, and I don't need to tell my computer that more than once until I change my mind, as opposed to twice every-time I open iTunes.

OS X Yosemite :: How To Disable Password Login At Start Up

Dec 10, 2014

Since installing Yosemite 10.10.1, every time I turn on my MacBook Pro I have to Select User and then login with my password. I don't want this, since I'm the only user and it wastes time. This didn't used to happen before installing Yosemite. I can't find the button in Security and Privacy that turns this off!

OS X :: Password Prompt Before App Install?

Oct 12, 2010

On my MBP, I get prompted for a PW before any program gets installed.

On my iMac, at times I get prompted, other times I don't.

I just downloaded handbrake and installed but there was no PW prompt.

The day before I installed a plug in for Quicktime and was prompted for a PW.

How can I get so that I get prompted for a PW every time before anything gets installed?

OS X :: Stop The Password Prompt?

Sep 24, 2009

this seems pretty basic, but I can't seem to find a way to turn off the password prompt in Mac OSX.

I have an account for my parents, and they don't need a password, but if they try and install software etc - it comes up with the Password Prompt window. Obviously, you don't enter anything into the password field and just continue on, but seeing how there is no password in the first place, why does it still ask for one?

I've been a Mac user for a few years, but have never came across this - I always use a password

OS X :: Screensaver Password Prompt Timeout?

Sep 14, 2007

I have enabled the prompt for a password when waking from screensaver and this works fine as long as I respond to the password prompt quickly. However, if I don't respond fairly quickly then the password prompt disappears leaving a black screen with just the mouse pointer visible. No matter what I type I can't bring the password prompt back up and therefore can't gain access. The only way I can do this is to press the power button and wait for 5 minutes or so before bringing it back out of sleep and typing my password more quickly.

The machine is a new iMac 2.4G 24" if that makes any difference. All latest updates applied.

OS X Mavericks :: FaceTime Password Prompt?

Jun 21, 2014

Both iCloud and FaceTime are continually prompting for passwords.  Hitting 'cancel' usually dismisses the iCloud box, but the FaceTime box just keeps reappearing. 

I don't want to enter either password until I'm ready to, and I especially could care less about FaceTime because I don't use it on this computer.  It can go away completely.  So how can I shut it off and tell it to stop bothering me?

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Start A New Email Without Prompt To Rebuild Coming Up

May 7, 2012

In outlook mail a box came up saying to rebuild database which I did. I clicked done when finished.When I went to email I can now receive emails and reply to emails but I cannot start a new email without the prompt to rebuild coming up.Once this prompt comes up I have to rebuild again as the swirly thing prevents me from doing anything else, so I end up in a circular pattern and consequently can't use outlook.

OS X :: Password Hints From Screensaver Login Prompt

Jul 20, 2010

First of all, how do I get my password hint to show up from the screensaver login/password prompt? I have my password and hint set up so that only people close to me will be able to figure it out in case they ever need to use my laptop, however at the moment the hint doesn't even show up. Also, I'm aware that you can change the text to the login page for user accounts, but is there any way to change the text for the screensaver login prompt? If so, where would I find it in "Library"?

MacBook :: No Password Set But Prompt Keeps Coming On Startup

Apr 20, 2012

I used to have a password on my Macbook but I got annoyed of having to type it in every time I closed/opened the lid and the Macbook woke up. I got rid of the password through my system settings, but the prompt kept coming up when I opened the Macbook, but there was no password. I would just leave the password field blank and hit enter. Okay, no big deal. I just restarted my Macbook because it was lagging with video, and its asking me for a password to start up. I tried leaving it blank and just hitting Log In, the prompt shakes back and forth. I tried my old password before I got rid of it, the prompt just shakes. I don't have a password, why am I getting a prompt on startup and how do I get past it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Does Screen Saver Prompt For Secure Disk Image Password

Mar 17, 2012

I go into System Preferences->Dektop & Screen Saver.  As the program "loads" availabe image sources and such I get a pop-up requesting a password to my secure disk image. Yes, I have a secure disk image in my home directory. Yes, the secure disk image is currently "locked" (Not mounted in finder). 

I click cancel (a few times, probably 2 maybe 3 times) and things continue along fine. I select a photo source that I want for a screen save and exit peferences. I then go an start the screen saver (I'm using Hot-Corners). I get the message "Looking for pictures....." for , well...basically forever... 

Sure enough I touch the mouse to leave my screen saver and there is the pop-up again.  Asking for me to unlock my secure disk image. 

I thought this might be related to Spotlight.  I tried reading several threads and have gone as far as taking my entire hard-drive/volume and putting it into the "Privacy" tab under spotlight. 

how I might get it so the "Desktop & Screen Saver" stop prompting me to unlock my secure disk image?  (WITHOUT having to make sure the disk image is unlocked before I sleep my screen or open the screen saver utlity) As always, I am only speculating that this is Spotlight related so that could be a red-herring....

Mac Mini :: Clicking On User Does Not Bring Up Password Prompt In Fast Switch

Jun 12, 2012

I have two users on my mac mini running OS X 10.7.4, both are administrators. When I click on my username in the upper right hand corner of the screen and select the second user, I can type in the password and "rotate" on over to the other user. However, from the second user account when I try and go back to the first user via the same process, no prompt appears when clicking on the user name from the drop down in the top right of the screen.

Applications :: ITunes Accept Incoming Connections Prompt?

Nov 17, 2010

The most recent iTunes update 10.1 has caused a prompt box every time I open iTunes that requires me to "allow" incoming connections. I have added iTunes in the firewall settings as always allow but still it comes up over and over. I do not have this problem on my two other macs that I updated the same day. All are running 10.6.5 and have identical iTunes libraries but for some reason my iMac will not stop prompting me over this. Is there a fix that I am not aware of?

OS X :: Disable Screensaver Password - Using Administrator Account

Jan 6, 2010

I am a network administrator and an mac user. No one else is my IT dept knows anything about macs so I have been given the responsibility of managing our 5 or so Mac's in the company. I've been able to figure everything out fine, but I have one user that insists on turning on the screensaver password on his computer. Now on windows, you can unlock a computer using an administrator account but on mac this is not the case. I want to disable the option for the screensaver password but I do not know how. The user is a local administrator on the computer because that is needed for a few things but he is making it impossible for me to work on his computer because of the password. Also, I've tried telling him not to enable it but he seems to not care what I think.
